Jeffrey Bronken was piloting the plane about 4 a.m. when it hit power lines before crashing nose-first into a median of a six-lane street.

The father and daughter were traveling to Florida for spring break, along with Katherine Bronken's softball teammate, 15-year-old Keyana Linbo. She survived the crash, but remains hospitalized.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the crash.

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom.
